British comedian CHARLIE HIGSON has snubbed a lucrative offer to write the next adult James Bond book, because he is committed to releasing more tales about superspy 007 as a teenager.

The 46-year-old rocketed to literary success with his hit book SILVERFIN - itself heading for the big screen with teen stars Daniel Radcliffe and Jamie Bell currently battling for the lead role.

And, although Higson was desperate to be involved in the project marking the 100 year anniversary of 007 creator IAN FLEMING's death, he decided the young Bond series should come first.

He says, "I'm very honoured. But I'm busy writing the young Bond books and I can't take the time out. It's a shame because I'd love to do it."

Meanwhile, the comedy legend admits there is one offer he would not turn down - the chance to play the suave superspy himself.

He sighs, "I keep writing them letters. Every man my age has something in the back of his head that says: 'I could be James Bond.'"
